In case it is overheating, you should move the 360 into open space when it is on. Those things can get pretty hot, especially when on for long periods of time.

However, it is more likely that there is a problem with you audio/visual cable (the three pronged thing). Check for any breaks in the cord, or the prongs themselves. The metal pieces can become detached. If this is the problem, buying a new cable is the best option, and wont set you back too much.

There is also a switch at the base of the cable (where it plugs into the xbox) you should make sure it is set to TV and not HD-TV. That could also cause the problem.

    I also forgot to mention that though the cable may look fine externally, there could still be a break in the connection inside. If nothing fixes the problem and the cable looks fine, i still recommend buying a new one because of this. Sorry for the confusion.

XBOX 360 HDMI Problem green/purple screen


Try the following:
Reconnect your console and TV:
  1. Remove any devices placed between the console and the TV.
  2. Connect the HDMI cable from the back of your console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.
  3. If you're using an audio-only A/V cable, unplug this cable and then connect the HDMI cable from the back of the console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.Learn more about connecting your console to a TV.
Note If your HDTV has an image-enhancement feature or any kind of digital noise-reduction feature, turn this feature off. See your HDTV user manual for instructions.

I have an xbox 360, but i have a ps3 connect to the tv via hdmi. i swapped the hdmi cable to the xbox and powered on. i had all the cables in the correct position, the correct av selected on the tv, but...


Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

When I am switching on the xbox I am getting all four red lights on with flashing.


Disconnect and reconnect the AV cable. If that does not work, you can try a friend's cable. If that works, the cable is shot, if not the 360 needs a service or, well, that cable is shot too!

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

Picture will not show


You might want to try the following:

1. make sure that the AV cable is not loose or incorrectly seated in both the Xbox 360 console and the TV
2. make sure that you have the correct AV cable for your TV, to verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices
3. if you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings because you may lose the picture
4. make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
Example:
- if your Xbox 360 console is an NTSC console, make sure that your TV supports NTSC
- if your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- if your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
5. reset your Xbox 360 console
- Remove any discs from the disc tray
- Turn off the console
- Turn on the console
- As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time
- The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console.
6. Do not take your Xbox 360 console or its accessories to your retailer for repair or for service unless an Xbox Customer Support representative asks you to do this

Xbox 360 - While setting up in menu the TV went black and msg. No Sync. Signal


First, make sure you select either TV or HDTV selector on the Audio Video Cable that came with the XBOX. Second, if you chose TV plug the Audio/Video Cable connectot that are red, white , and yellow in color to your TV. Now see if you can see the Start up on the XBOX360.
If you still dont get anything, try plugging it on another television and see if that fixes your problem.
